THE GROVE creates a stunning ceremony backdrop amongst the ornamental pear trees or the perfect setting for long table dining under the stars. The terraced lawn connects The Grove, Pavilion and Wine Cellar, and is ideal area for lawn games, canapés and pre-dinner drinks as the sun sets over the mountains.

CREEKSIDE ceremony locations are abundant at Stonehurst. Nestled amongst the casuarina trees, overlooking the stone causeway or on the edge of the riverbank in our new landscaped setting, the Creekside options provide a private and picturesque area for your vows.

THE COTTAGE VINEYARD is an unforgettable backdrop for ceremonies. Set on the edge of our Shiraz vineyards, this outdoor location overlooks the bush covered valley and soaring mountains of our 5th-generation estate.

THE PAVILION is a beautiful wet-weather ceremony location that also offers an open-air dining area. Purpose built, the Pavilion is set amongst the poplar trees and overlooks the flowing creek below.

THE WINE CELLAR offers an indoor, industrial-chic event space that can be styled to suit all celebrations. A converted warehouse, The Wine Cellar features 22-foot high ceilings with exposed steel beams, a barrel lined wall and handcrafted elephant doors, opening onto The Grove. From simple table vases to hanging floral installations, this is the perfect setting to create your beautifully personalised wedding.

ACCOMMODATION Holding your event at Stonehurst Cedar Creek offers you the ease and convenience of accommodation onsite. The property’s seven private, self-contained vineyard cottages provide ideal accommodation for 28 guests, with many additional accommodation options in the area. Gather for a pre-wedding dinner or relax the morning after with a group breakfast in The Grove. Each cottage is treated to a country breakfast hamper, complimentary port and chocolates, claw-foot or spa bath, wood fire and late check-out for all guests.

CATERING With no exclusive caterers, Stonehurst Cedar Creek offers total flexibility to use any provider you wish! From food trucks to buffets, wood-fired pizzas to 5-course degustation, and everything in between. Our team can provide recommendations for all styles of catering, or you can bring in your favourite supplier.

Georgia & Max

We cannot recommend Stonehurst highly enough! The team is kind, informative, flexible and super helpful. Working with them was a dream and the process was stressless. We are so happy we went with Stonehurst, not only was it the perfect venue, but they are the perfect team. Our wedding weekend was even better than we imagined it could be, and we have Stonehurst to thank for that!”

Paris & Pat

We fell in love with the place (& the people) from the moment we visited Stonehurst. It is the most perfect place for a wedding, from the stunning various ceremony locations, the beautiful wine cellar room & outdoor area for receptions and the cosy accommodation… everything is there in one place & makes you feel as though you’ve stepped into a fairytale! Our wedding day was the most magical day, thanks to this unreal venue and the entire team… nothing was too much of an ask, they went above & beyond to ensure we had everything we wanted. These guys know weddings and they know how to make your day super special. Big shoutout to Kelli who answered every phone call and email promptly with warmth and professionalism to ensure everything was sorted (and got us through a postponement stress-free)! There aren’t enough words for how special this place is & how wonderful it is to be married here

Giorgia & Robert

I cannot recommend this venue enough, it is an absolutely gorgeous location! But what really made our day was the fantastic staff and in particular the wedding team of Kelli and Yasmin. From when we first booked they were there to answer any question we had, big or small, and then on the day helped to make everything run as smoothly as possible, constantly checking in to make sure things were going the way they needed to.

Laura & Adam

We very recently had our wedding at Stonehurst Cedar Creek and wow what a beautiful place and great experience! We were very lucky to have good weather and the place just looked stunning – we had so many compliments from our guests! The Stonehurst team were so easy and fantastic to work with at all stages. Guests loved the wine and were most impressed with the cottages. Honestly I think the day turned out even better than I could have hoped for. Thank you!

Laura and Adam

Brooke & Matt

We fell in love with Stonehurst from our first visit. The beautiful cottages meant that our families and bridal party could stay on site and we could all share in the excitement leading up to the wedding and didn’t have to travel far on the night of the wedding.

Kelli and Yas were incredible in their support on the day and in the lead up to the wedding. They were patient and kind to all our guests and excited family members who visited or called as we approached the wedding.

We had a beautiful wedding and can’t wait to visit in the future. Thank you Stonehurst team!
